Not very much happened yesterday. Just our normal routine of work here at our volunteer job at Otter Springs Campground. This weekend will be the busiest we've had since we arrived...quite a few arrivals coming so we had plenty of site checks to do. This consists of making sure each site has a table and firepit, and that the firepits are cleaned out. It has also been very windy, and a lot of the trees have been shedding dead branches and palm fronds. So we spent the afternoon moving the debris out of the campground and over to the burn pile.
We are officially returning to Amazon in October. Our personnel manager Kelly had called on Wednesday to re-interview us, and has sent the paperwork we need. It's interesting, in the interview this year they must read you the physical requirements of the job and you must answer a series of questions relating to these requirements. We suspect that is because last year the paper was among the job proposal paperwork that they sent us, but based on many people's attitudes towards the job once we got there, they must not have read this sheet, or at the very least, didn't believe it :-). The most wearing part of the job is standing on your feet for the entire shift, but if you're reasonably healthy and in decent shape, most folks will survive. It's not forever, only a few weeks and then you're done. There's always light at the end of the tunnel :-).
Our other job news is about Colorado. Joan, the owner of Chalk Creek Campground, called yesterday and gave us the news that they have sold the campgound. Now, we didn't know that it had been up for sale, and there was a brief moment of concern, but she was calling to assure us that the new owners were wonderful people, leaving everything exactly the way it is, and were honoring the work contracts in place, and looking forward to having us come in for the summer. Whew! I thought for a few minutes there that I would have to go on the job hunt again! We also were able to speak with the new owner, Tamara, and she did sound happy to hear from us and glad we were coming in for the summer. So we are still on track for departure from Florida right after Easter, westerward-ho.
That's about it for today. I'm trying to write more frequently again, but the reports will most likely be a bit shorter :-). That's probably good news for readers :-). Have a great day!
